A Second Chance Novel
About the book...
Once invited into New Orleans’ historic mansions to evaluate prized antiques, Dr. Jewell Duet held a coveted professorship at a top university. With her deep knowledge of Louisiana history and antiquities, she was the go-to person for anyone requiring professional appraisals. But, one hasty decision cost her both her reputation and possibly her freedom. Now, as she waits to discover if her future includes prison, Jewell knows that taking the job at Sugar Mill is necessary if she is to support her beloved grandmother who has advanced dementia.
Charming, sexy lawyer Beau Bienvenu's attraction to the intriguing historian vies with his distrust of her motives. He doesn't trust Jewell, nor her reason for taking the lowly job at Sugar Mill Plantation. What is she really up to? Is it possible Jewell and her quirky grandmother are there to try to profit from a Bienvenu family mystery? If so, both women are out of luck.
Jewell and Beau are at odds about almost everything. The only things they agree on are that family is everything…and that their mutual attraction is inconvenient.
Sounds good, right?
I sure thought so...
...a leading lady distrusted by most waiting to see if her life will include orange as her new pink....
...a leading man, and possible love interest, that is at odds with his heart as he tries to find the truth...
...a lovable grandmother, a family mystery, local history, and....need I really go on?
Like I said, it sounds good, BUT it's about to sound even better for multiple reasons. How do I love thee? Let me list the ways...or rather THREE specifically.
1. All proceeds from the FIRST book in the series, Elli, are donated to women in the fight against breast cancer. How amazing is that? As if you needed another reason to add a book to your wish list....
